Wowie, there is a good story that goes along with how I was asked to be apart of this beautiful couple’s wedding. I first reached out to Cushing Field House at the beginning of the year inquiring about possibly hosting a styled shoot at their gorgeous venue. If you have never heard of their venue, just you wait. It is to die for. The owners of Cushing Field House, Peter and Cushie, were totally down for participating in my styled shoot, and could not wait to get a few more photos to add to their promotional materials! While planning, and shooting the styled shoot, I got to know Peter and Cushie better and immediately fell in love with their kindness and hospitality. They truly know how to make a stranger feel welcome. Peter and Cushie’s daughter, Summer was getting married in September and was in need of engagement photos. They kindly asked me to work with Summer and Paul, and from that session on, I knew there was something special about this family.
Summer, Paul, and I got along really well while shooting their engagement photos. They were the perfect kind of the giddy in love couple that you hope to draw out at every engagement session. They were so down for anything I asked them to do, and really enjoyed letting me third wheel! After our session, they asked me if I would be willing to second shoot for their wedding. I didn’t have to think twice and immediately said yes and did everything I could to be at their wedding. Benj Haisch was the lead photographer, and working with him for their wedding was a complete honor. Benj is a mastermind when it comes to photography, and being able to learn from him was so amazing!
Summer and Paul’s wedding was nothing short of amazing. Ashley Lynch from Festoons and Flourishes did such an amazing job. When you describe your wedding day, you want to remember it as magical. I think Ashley did such an amazing day of creating a space that was full of love, laughter, warmth and magic. Truly I never wanted to leave the magic tent full of love. They even ended their night with an amazing firework show, c’mon it can’t get any better than that! That probably sounds cliche but truly it was that and more.
Being able to relive their day just brings me back to all the happiness. I will be forever grateful for this amazing family, and their desire to make anyone feel welcome during one of the most special times in their life. Also, a big thank you to Benj for allowing me to work with you and learn from one of the bests! It is an experience that I truly never want to forget! Now for the pretty. Check out how freaking gorgeous this wedding was!
